A common theme in everyday modern life is the mid-day energy dip. It’s funny how it seems to happen to everyone at roughly the same time – as though it’s a divinely coordinated event that we all participate in, usually against our will.
If you’re tired of the drooping fatigue that plagues you, here are some energizing juice recipes to keep you running smooth and strong.
Coco Splash Hydrating Juice Recipe
Coco Splash is one of my favorite juice recipes. It’s so simple to make and so deliciously refreshing! It’s the perfect pick-me-up juice to have whenever you can use a little lift.
Did you know that one of the most common causes of daytime fatigue is simply dehydration? Quench your thirst with this delicious combination of coconut juice and cantaloupe:
- 1 cup coconut water
- 1/2 cantaloupe (peeled)
- 1/2 lime
The coconut water in Coco Splash is a natural source of electrolytes such as potassium to replenish your system. And cantaloupe (also good as juice) is a rich source of the antioxidant vitamin A (100 grams of cantaloupe provides 112% of your daily vitamin A) as well as a source of energizing B-complex vitamins.
Oh, and did we mention that Coco Splash is mind-blowingly yummy?
Flyin’ High Digestive Boost
You know what leads to energy crash? Sometimes, it’s something as simple as not being able to easily digest what you eat. The more energy is expended in digesting your food, the less energy left over for you to do more important things, like peruse YouTube for cat videos 😉
And we can’t have that. So here’s an easy peasy green juice recipe to get your digestive juices flowing:
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 5 cups chopped romaine
- 3 cups chopped pineapple
The result is a gentle juice that’s chock full of chlorophyll, which will give you a natural energy boost without any of the usual bitterness that comes from many green juices.
Both the spinach and Romaine lettuce are very beginner-friendly and will help get your tastebuds used to the taste of green juice without overwhelming them. And the pineapple adds a very welcome tart sweetness to the mix as well as giving the juice a bit of a digestive boost. Sip before meals!
Beet the Mid-Day Crash
Want a truly rejuvenating juice recipe with just a few ingredients and tons of benefits? Here’s a brilliant one::
- 1 bunch parsley
- 3 medium beets, quartered (juice the stems too!)
- 2 apples, quartered
- 1/2 lemon
Overall, a supremely reinvigorating drink, packed with energy-stimulating parsley, nitrate-rich beets, ginger to speed up your circulation, and lemon for electrolytes such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium to keep you going all day.
Kale Whale Green Juice Recipe
Kale Whale is hands-down one of the yummiest green juice recipes around. It’s easy to make, too:
- 2 carrots
- 1 cup chopped kale
- 1 cucumber
- 1 apple
- 1/2 bunch parsley
It gives a blast of chlorophyll without the bitterness that some green juices bring. The end result is a pleasantly sweet, wonderfully refreshing, energy-boosting powerdrink that makes it hard to believe it’s so good for you!
The Energizer Bunny
If you haven’t yet tried ginseng in a juice recipe, this is your chance! The Energizer Bunny is a rejuvenating juice that takes just a few minutes to make and results in energy that keeps going and going. Ginseng’s super multi-faceted – this potent root boosts immunity, purified your blood, reduces stress, increases stamina and goes a long way toward improving your overall energy levels.
It’s even been shown to enhance memory and boost cognitive function! Not to mention the metabolism boost it gives your system…
To top it all off, apples and carrots add an anti-oxidant-laden sweetness to the mix!
In case you find the taste of ginger too strong for you, you can increase the carrots and decrease the ginseng to start.
Bazinga Juice Recipe for Energy
On the hunt for a fruit and vegetable juice recipe that’ll clear head fog? This one’s perfect – it’s fueled with energy-stimulating parsley, ginger to speed up your circulation, and lemon for electrolytes such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium to keep you going during your day. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 3 carrots
- 1 apple
- 1 cup parsley
- 1 lemon
- 2 inch ginger
Apples, of course, are an oldie-but-a-goodie superfood. Just one of these crunchy yummers pack in over 8 milligrams of Vitamin C, which amounts to about 14% of your daily recommendation, and have been linked to everything from helping to fight cancer to acting as an aid against diabetes.
Carrots add extra sweetness, as well as their own unique medley of nutrients. Did you know that just 128 grams of carrots provides 308% of your daily Vitamin A recommendation? Not to mention the protein, iron, and Vitamin C it contains…
***This juice might come on a bit strong, so be sure to dilute it with water if necessary! Oh, and if you’re not into the taste of ginger (yet), go for an inch rather than two.
